Supplemental Instruction is a learning enhancement program that targets traditionally difficult courses and provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated review sessions. Students have the opportunity to attend these sessions to discuss and process course information. In SI, our focus isn’t high-risk students, but high-risk classes. For this reason, SI is open to all students who want to increase their understanding of course material and improve their grades. SI improves academic performance (students’ grades) by increasing critical thinking, reduces drop/withdrawal rates, and increases graduation rates.
What’s in it for you?
If you attend regularly, chances are you’ll earn a better grade, increase your understanding of course content, and develop more effective ways of studying - which will carry over to other classes!
How to join an SI Group
Ask your instructor if your class has an SI group. If so, they will refer you to the SI leader for group study sessions times. If not, the instructor may appoint an SI leader to begin a group for that course.
